SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 284,499, dated September 4 1883.

Application filed July 30,1883. (N0 model.)

T0 at whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, HENRY J. sM1Tn,a citiburg, thirty-first ward, county of Allegheny, and State of Pennsylvania, have invented new which the following is a specification.

-The object of my invention is to provide a glass cruet-caster capable of holding; two or more bottles, and which will be cheap in construction, durable in use, and of highly orna- 7 My invention consists in a cruet-caster composed wholly of glass, having its frame pressed in a single piece audits handle in another piece, the two being united by a screw, and having the joint between them covered by a metal ferrule.

Referring to the drawings, forming part of this application, Figure 1 is a perspective showing my invention. Fig. 2 is a front elevation with the handle detached. Fig. 3 is a vertical section, showing the manner of attaching the handle.

A in thedrawings represents the base of the frame, and B a central supporting-piece, which carries the cruet-receptacles C. These three parts.viz., the base, the cruet-holders, and the connectingpiece Bare all formed in a single piece of glass pressed into. the required shape. i

D represents the handle of the cruetstand, which is of glass molded or pressed into the desired form, and provided at its lowerend with an enlarged portion, which is surrounded by a loose ferrule, E, of Brittania metal or other suitable material, having an angular or flaring flange, e. A screw, d, is formed upon that end of the handle surrounded by said fer-. rule, and the parts are attached in the following manner: A centralopening is formed in the .top of the hollow body B, and through said opening is passed an interiorly-threaded nut, F, having a flange, f, which lies against which is held by a key, G, as the handle is turned, the key having lugs engaging with perforations in the head of the nut; When the handle is turned into place, the edge of the ferrule E will meet the shoulder on the handle D, above the threaded end, and will form a tight joint therewith above and below, at the same time givingsupportto the handle, and,

rendering it less liable to break at that point; Cruet-stands constructed in this manner may be made of any desired form, and be ornamented in a great variety of styles. They are quickly and easily constructed, being pressed inmolds or dies of the required form, and are not only cheap and durable, but are highly ornamental, even when made of plain glass, without decoration. Having thus described my invention, what I claim is 1. A. cruet-stand constructed of glass, con sisting of the base A, the cruet-frames O O, and the connecting portion B, all pressed in a single piece, and the handle D united thereto, substantially as described. v 2. A glass cruet-stand' composed of the base A, the central piece, B, and the cruet-frames O C, said parts being pressed in a single piece, and the glass handle D, having the lower end threaded and surrounded by a loose metallic ferrule, E, said handle being attached tothe stand by a nut, F, having flange f, said nut being passed upward through a perforation in
